Mackenzie Foy: Clara
Philip : [sees Clara looking at the bridge to the Fourth Realm] Halt!
[points his sword at her]
Philip : Who goes there?
Clara : [startled] It's just me!
Philip : [misunderstands] State your purpose, Justme.
Clara : No, my name's Clara. And I must cross this bridge.
Philip : Impossible. Nobody crosses the bridge to the Fourth Realm without a direct order from the regents.
Clara : [confused] Fourth Realm? Where am I?
Philip : [puts away his sword] You're in the Christmas Tree Forest. But THAT is the Fourth Realm, which is currently at war with the other three realms.
Clara : [alarmed] WAR?
Philip : That is correct, Miss Clara Justme.
Clara : [frustrated] No, my name isn't 'Clara Justme'. It's Stahlbaum. Clara Stahlbaum.
Philip : [surprised] Stahlbaum? Are you a relation to Marie Stahlbaum?
Clara : [nods] She's my mother.
Philip : [kneels] Forgive me, Your Majesty! I didn't recognize you, Princess Clara.
Clara : [surprised and amused] Princess?
Philip : [gets back up] Captain Philip Hoffman. At your service, Your Majesty.
Shiver : [shows Clara Marie's old throne room] This is your mother's throne, Your Grace.
Sugar Plum : Have you come to save us, Clara?
Clara : No.
[the regents look disappointed]
Clara : I'm sorry. I didn't even now this place existed before today. You see, I was looking for a Christmas present from my godfather.
Hawthorne : [delighted] Oh, I love Christmas!
[to Sugar Plum and Shiver; lost]
Hawthorne : What's Christmas?
Clara : Then I ran into this homeless mouse.
Shiver : [concerned] Mouse?
Clara : And that's when I met the captain.
Philip : [enters the throne room] We barely escaped Mother Ginger. And the Mouse King.
Sugar Plum : [gasps] You met Mother Ginger? Oh my dear Clara, you're lucky to be alive!
Hawthorne : You must promise never to go back to the Land of Amusements, Clara.
Sugar Plum : [frustrated] Hawthorne!
Shiver : [also frustrated] Its title has been restricted.
Hawthorne : Oh, of course. I meant the Fourth Realm.
[to Sugar Plum and Shiver]
Hawthorne : Apologies. I'm just so upset.
Hawthorne : Forget I ever mentioned the Land of Amusements.
[Sugar Plum and Shiver silence him]
Shiver : [to Clara, as she's attempting to escape the tower] My dear, that doesn't look very secure.
Hawthorne : [worried] You can't!
Hawthorne : It's not gonna work.
Clara : It's just the laws of physics.
Philip : Do those laws ALWAYS work?
Clara : Always.
[under her breath]
Clara : As far as I know.
